Sega confirms the Valkyria Chronicles 4 release date, and reveals pre-order bonuses and special editions.
First things first, Valkyria Chronicles 4 will be released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC on September 25, 2018.
In North America, the initial batch of physical copies – plus all pre-order copies – will be branded as the Valkyria Chronicles 4 Launch Edition, and will come with a Ragnarok controller skin tailored for each console platform. European fans will have to make do with a Ragnarok sticker.
If you are really keen for some trinkets, the Memoirs from Battle Premium Edition is the version to go for. In addition to two new DLC adventures – featuring characters from the original Valkyria Chronicles – it will include a 100-page art book based on Claude’s in-game travel journal, and a vinyl replica of his tank, the Hafen.
Hopes are high for Valkyria Chronicles 4. Although the game’s cast is all new, it features the return of the BLiTZ battle system – which combines turn-based strategy, RPG and shooter elements – and a refined hand-drawn visual style courtesy of the Canvas Graphics Engine. Composer Hitoshi Sakimoto is also back to provide a new orchestral score.
You can find out more, and pre-order the game, at the official Valkyria Chronicles 4 website.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
